Fun for You - but those of us on the receiving end of your keyboard might not survive it!!
LOL... Well, not likely to happen anyway. I got the laptop reset to its original configuration, but noticed the top of the case (containing the touchscreen) also has some broken plastic. I’ll never use anything that I can’t make look pristine, as I’m way too OCD. I think this thing isn’t worth dealing with. Maybe I’ll just pull the hard drive, motherboard, and a few other components, and then just scrap the rest. I can probably build a NAS with the motherboard.

I understand you upgrading your laptop. I did the same and gave the old one I used for backup my ex. My partner wanted me to give it to him for parts. It still worked. Just time to let go of the old and get something new. In time I will make it my main laptop and use the other one for backup duty. The one I use now to DJ with cost me less than $50 and is doing well. Just got to get another battery.

I'm scared to ask where did you get a laptop for $50?

It was less than $50. It was a long ride. Someone just posted it online and just wanted to get rid of it. They had no use for it. It's still working just fine.
Perfect main machine ...

I know you're being funny but believe it or not I still use that laptop to DJ with to this day. See one thing for me. I don't do a whole lot fancy stuff that others do that would require me to use a high end laptop. I just use it with VDJ, play movies and play Monopoly.
